It's a miracle

This is the first year that the purple-leaved sage has flowered, okay, there are only five specks of blue but it’s a start! The flowers aren’t as big or as bright as the green-leaved sage. I cut it back hard at the beginning of the spring, to give the other herbs at the front of the border some room, which perhaps was just the stimulus it needed? Well, something seemed to work. We’ve had this sage plant since we used to live in Hackney, and that’s going back five years. It’s a lot bigger now but just assumed it wasn’t a flowering variety. Oh, it’s lovely to be wrong!

We thought that we would rather like a herb garden and it has grown really well. BUT recipes say 5ml spoonfull of this and 5ml spoonfull of that and at that rate we have enough to supply every Sainsbury and Tesco store in London.

Have to admit that I don't use the herbs all that much just the usual suspects...
